Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
November 11, 2008
1) Cuts in the SBD between songs. A brief dropout near the end of Playing.
2) A couple small cuts in the AUD between songs. The left channel is low for part of the second Tuning track. Good AUD banter.
3) Some fluctuations in the SBD mix during Half-Step. Garcia's guitar shifts around in the channels, is sort of low in the levels, and is more prominent in the right channel for the earlier portion of the show. Luckily, Garcia's guitar is a bit louder in Severson's recording, which centers the guitar sound more and makes the levels better.
4) About a twenty second portion of Drums>Space in the SBD was repeated, which was removed. It appears there may have been another source patched in at this moment, since the hiss increases and the speed changes a little after this point - perhaps another cassette generation.

Jesus this sounds good. Excellent matrix. I used to just go for the soundboards when available. That was my buzz for awhile. Now I'm finding the matrix tapes really sweet. This one is lovely. I've only gotten through 2 minutes of Peggy-O and I'm already compelled to write a review. just beautiful sound. I'll give it a five because there's nothing lacking. It's the quality I like and expect and the songs are great, played well. '79 has a nice warm sound.

Ramp It Up
OK, I reviewed the AUD of this show not too long ago and gave it 4 stars, saying that it really is a 4.5 star show. Well, now that we have this entry of a fantastic Matrix of two great sources, I guess I'd step it up to 4.75 stars. Fantastic high energy show with perhaps to "blow-your-mind" explosions, but it has that consistent groove that doesn't let up or slow down. Phil and Jerry just dig in deep and have some fun here. Most definitely worth a listen. Thanks again to the magician that is Mr. Seamons
